GOP Rep. Dean Kaufert to run for Neenah mayor against George Scherck


NEENAH, WI (WTAQ) - A Fox Valley lawmaker is announcing a run for mayor in Neenah.

Republican State Representative Dean Kaufert said Monday he will challenge incumbent Mayor George Scherck in April.

Kaufert says the decision to run against his personal friend and former colleague was a tough one, but feels now is the time for a fresh change in leadership for Neenah. He is a former Neenah city council member.

Kaufert says if he wins the seat in the April 1 election, he will leave his seat in the state Legislature to focus on the duties of mayor.

Scherck says the race will be an awkward one because of the friendship between the two men.
